Our Vision at Temple Beth Israel Religious Studies
The vision of education at Temple Beth Israel Religious Studies is to create an observant Conservative, Jewish learning community with an overreaching purpose to convey appreciation for the joy and richness of Jewish life.
By creating a positive informal and fun Jewish learning environment for students and their families and teachers, they can successfully make connections between tefillah, song, mitzvoth and midot (good character values)–and can incorporate them into their daily lives and lead to a lifelong pursuit of Jewish learning.
The vision of education at Temple Beth Israel Religious Studies is also to foster a love and appreciation of the Hebrew language, and a recognition and appreciation of one’s place in Jewish history – all in order to create the future leaders of the Jewish community.
Through integrated educational experiences, our Religious Studies Program hopes to instill enthusiasm-for, and a desire to spend more time in Israel in any of many capacities as well to develop a sense of pride in one’s Jewish identity and a passion to advocate for it.
Our hope is that our students know that the synagogue is a safe place where they can explore their identity and beliefs and that Temple Beth Israel is a place where they can feel comfortable and know that we will always be there for them.
The following outlines key objectives/activities within our program areas and levels. Within each area, we provide the individual student with best tools for learning using a classroom teaching style specifically tailored to meet the student’s individual learning needs.
